Recent Developments in Aviation Law

Arthur Willner and Ray Mariani, members of the Leader Berkon Colao & Silverstein Aviation Litigation team, have authored "Recent Developments in Aviation Law", which was just published by the SMU Journal of Air Law and Commerce in its annual symposium edition. Typically presented at the opening of the annual SMU Aviation Symposium, this article addresses a wide range of issues and developments across the aviation spectrum, with legal commentary that has an impact on other practice areas as well.

Our Aviation Litigation team continues to represent clients in high profile matters across the country. This work includes our representation of a defendant in the 2020 fatal helicopter crash involving Kobe Bryant and other passengers; defending a client in the fatal crash of a Virginia State Police helicopter during the events in Charlottesville in the summer of 2017; and representing major airlines, including a ground collision at JFK between two Boeing 777 aircraft, an in-flight traumatic brain injury claim and a variety of discrimination claims.
